Transmission Line Repair - Hot Sticks

4.0 2 Reviews SKU: TDTLH00CENDuration: 60 Minutes

The purpose of this course is to teach the theory and practice involved in safe use of hot sticks to perform live transmission line repair. Basic safety issues and basic techniques for the care, selection, and use of hot sticks are presented. The course builds on a basic understanding of how to work on transmission towers and the use of high-voltage rigging techniques to demonstrate replacement of string insulators using hot sticks. At the conclusion of this course, participants should be able to describe the safety issues important in performing live transmission line repair using hot sticks. They should be able to care for, select, and use hot sticks. They should also be able to explain how to replace string insulators in all three common positions.

Learning Objectives

  • Transmission Line Repair (Hot Sticks)
  • Define “hot stick.”
  • Explain the meanings of “potential,” “safe working distance,” and “minimum clearance” as they apply to hot stick safety.
  • Recognize some of the basic types of hot sticks and hot stick accessories used for transmission line maintenance.
  • Planning a Job
  • Explain the type of planning necessary to perform a job using hot sticks.
  • Explain the purpose of the coating on hot sticks.
  • Demonstrate and explain the basic requirements for inspecting and storing hot sticks.
  • Insulator Changeout (Suspension)
  • Describe a basic procedure for changing out insulator string in the suspension position on a spar pole structure.
  • Identify the types of hot sticks used to change out the insulators string.
  • Identify safety considerations associated with using hot sticks.
  • Insulator Changeout (V String)
  • Describe a basic procedure for changing out a “V” string of insulators on a lattice tower.
  • Recognize the use of basic techniques when using hot sticks to change out a “V” string of insulators.
